Sid is ready to sign up & play some Euro hockey - it's over
 
Sidney Crosby says that his agent, Pat Brisson, has spoken with multiple teams in Russia and Switzerland on behalf of his client.

Crosby said that playing overseas is starting to look much more plausible right now because of the state of the ongoing labor dispute. "You know what? It's a lot more possible right now," he said prior to the announcement of federal mediators joining the process. "I probably hadn't thought about it quite as much as I have the past few days." Other countries and leagues haven't been ruled out, but it's not surprising to see Russia and Switzerland highlighted because they have been popular destinations for locked-out NHLers.

His hefty insurance costs would probably be pro-rated. "I don't know, specifically, if I've gotten to that point where I'm looking at [particular] teams, but I think I'm more or less thinking that playing is becoming a little more and more important here, the longer we go," said Pittsburgh's captain. "Especially in my case, where I've missed so much hockey in the last little bit."

How come Sid did not come and play in the Sandy Relief game? There was no hitting at all! Would have been nice to have had him there......
